24.1% of peo­ple watched porn once a week and 8.3% once a day or more of­ten.

Some 57.6% said they had watched porn with their part­ner while 41.8% said they had not.

And 23.6% said porn had made their sex life bet­ter while 66% said it had not made a dif­fer­ence. Seven per cent said it had made it worse.
